Item description for The Mathematics of Syntactic Structure: Trees and Their Logics (Studies in Generative Grammar, 44) (Studies in Generative Grammar) by Hans-Peter Kolb...

The collection The Mathematics of Syntactic Structure: Trees and their Logics is an outflow and documentation of the recent renaissance of formal language work for linguistic theory formation which has put long-neglected questions of descriptive complexity firmly back on the map of Generative Grammar.

As has been shown recently, a lot of the insights of contemporary Generative Grammar can be captured -- and even in a reasonable natural way -- in formally well-understood frameworks that allow only theories which specify strongly context-free languages. Especially in the case of monadic second order logic with multiple successors this avenue leads to formalizations of unknown transparency. However, natural languages do exhibit non-contextfree phenomena and it is obvious that in their pure form the methods and formalisms used in this "model theoretic" approach to syntax are too weak to capture them adequately. So now the quest is on for controlled extensions which retain such agreeable formal properties as decidability, but have exactly the expressive power needed for linguistic applications.

This volume is a progress report of this line of inquiry, with the first six papers concerned with metatheoretical issues of formalisms for linguistic theorizing, their properties and their extensions, and the remaining four discussing selected linguistic phenomena and analyses on the background of these results.
